Gun Test: Walther PPX

The 9 mm PPX comes with two 16-round magazines (or 14-round versions in .40 S&W) with witness holes on both sides to indicate the number of remaining cartridges.

Walther has been making quality handguns with a reputation for reliability and accuracy since the introduction of its Model 1 sometime around 1908. But the company remained relatively unfamiliar to most American shooters until 1962, when a PPK-concealing James Bond started saving the world on the silver screen. Sixty years later, the iconic pistol continues to overshadow some of Walther’s latest innovations, such as the PPX.

Part of the reason is that the recently released PPX isn’t as sexy as its older, more famous sibling. It’s a personal protection, duty-size gun with an overall length of 7.3 inches, height of 5.6 inches and a 1.3-inch waistline. The Walther lineage shows in the design, however, and the gun arrives at a price that will catch the attention of budget-conscious agencies, armed citizens and collectors—its suggested retail price is only $449.
